DD 214


Hi Jim, I served in the Army National Guard and I retrained in another MOS serving on active duty for 8 weeks as I retrained and upon completion of my active duty for training, I never received a DD-214. How come I was never issued a DD-214? I thought anytime you serve on active duty you were supposed to receive a DD-214.


Jim's Reply:

In most circumstances you'll need 90 days of uninterrupted active duty service to receive a DD-214. It sounds as if you didn't reach that mark. If there was even a day of inactive duty between active assignments, the clock rests for that 90 day period.
